Reddit Recommends: Apple Arcade Games for Kids08 Oct 2019 0
Hey, it me - throwing more things at the wall to see what sticks. Reddit’s a great (also: terrifying) platform, and often an interesting source of news and insight into what people are interested in at any given moment. In the past I’ve used it as for a variety of things, but today I thought I’d take that a step further.
While browsing r/iOSGaming I happened to come across a thread talking about child-friendly games on Apple Arcade. As a new parent myself (even though I don’t use iOS specifically) these kinds of things interest me, as my daughter is already showing interest in phones and has some idea of how they work. Introducing her to games is the next logical step.
But where to start? That’s something I think I’ll tackle further down the line but for any parents out there wondering the same, and since Apple Arcade is currently the new shiny thing, I thought I'd share a distillation of the reddit thread (OP - u/yworker) for your convenience. I’m listing them by post and whether or not anyone concurred - some posters recommended several games in one go.
To clarify, the OP was specifically asking about games for three-year olds, so YMMV on some of these recommendations:
- Sneaky Sasquatch (Seconded)
- Frogger in Toy Town and Painty Mob
- Dodo Peak, Fledgling Heroes
- Cricket Through the Ages
- Assemble with Care (Seconded)
There were some non-Arcade suggestions in that thread as well, but I wanted to try and remain on message. Let me know what you think or whether you have any suggestions of your own - kids are growing up with an unprecedented level of access to technology, and anything we can do to help each other out is appreciated.
